Mentoring Update: New Mentors and Matches

  • Print

It’s been a great few months in mentorship, with a lot of new interest in the program. In the past three months, three Victorian editors have been trained as mentors. In this time, Victoria has also had several new inquiries and four new mentee applications. Some of these potential mentees have already been matched with a mentor and, from what I hear, are already enjoying and benefiting from the program.

Some mentees have not yet been matched – hang in there! This matching business can take a bit of time. It is my role as mentorship coordinator to find a match that will suit both the mentor and mentee; it’s a considered process. But don’t worry – I’m getting to everyone.

If you would like to have a look at what the program is about, the Mentoring Program Guidance Notes can be found on the IPEd website at www.iped-editors.org/Professional_development/Mentoring.

Please feel free to contact me at any time at mentorship@editorsvictoria.org.

A big shout out to all of you currently in the program, and a big thank you to our mentors who generously offer so much of their time and their knowledge to their mentees.
